What's in my everyday make up bag?

After enduring the most boring year of my life doing beauty therapy at college, you would've thought i had learnt some pretty valuable lessons when it came to make up. Well i haven't and until a week ago, i put all the make up i had into the amazing make up case my mum got me and continuously rummaged through the eye liners and primers until i could find what i was looking for. This has now become a pain in the arse when i'm in a rush and need to get some war paint on so i invested in a make up bag to carry around my absolute essentials make up wise and frankly i'm surprised how long it's taken me to do this because it's the most sensible and practical thing i have ever done with regards to organisation. * Round of applause *. 

So to add to my post about what is in my wash bag, here's a little rummage through my everyday make up bag! ( I obviously have brushes too but there's no point showing them on here duh! )

As much as i hate following a crowd, i have to admit that the Naked Palette's from Urban Decay are the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to eyeshadows. As you can see i have the Naked Basics which is a brilliant little set that can be used daily and Carl bought me the Naked 2 palette for Christmas and i've fallen in love with it. I didn't really like the original palette and i haven't seen the Naked 3 yet so for now i'm more than happy with these.

Here we have a MAC eyeliner, Rimmel Scandaleyes liner pen, my trusty Collection 2000 kohl eye pencil, Eyelash curlers, L'Oreal Collection Privee lipstick, Benefit Pore fessional primer & the Maybelline colossal volume mascara. All of these items are what i go to everytime when i do my make up and i love them all though i'm still in 2 minds how i feel about the Benefit Pore Fessional.

The 2 items at the top are from a company called Sheercover. Sheercover is a mineral make up that is absolutely brilliant if you have problem skin like i do ( mine is very dry and i have break outs ). Liquid foundation and dry skin don't mix and make the finish very patchy and sort of half arsed but this mineral make up gives me a flawless finish and it's so ridiculously easy to apply, i'll never use anything else. And underneath is my Collection 2000 Mosaic Glow Bronzer which makes me look like i've just come back from holiday..if only it were true!

And finally i have my HD brows palette. I use this palette religiously because i am a victim of over plucking and i need all the help i can get when it comes to bringing my eyebrows back. Because i have black hair ( not natural ), i use the 'Vamp' palette which works with my skin tone and hair colour perfectly and i don't end up with those god awful scouse brows. Costly but so worth it.
